May 22nd 2011 is "We're Still Here" Day!

As many of us have been made aware, Evangelical Christian Harold Camping has predicted the Rapture will occur on May 21st, 2011 and the end of the world will follow, with a series of natural catastrophes over the next five months, culminating in a grand finale "End of All Things" on October 21st, 2011.

Either way I figure it's a Win Win situation for every body else since one of two things will happen on Sunday May 22nd, 2011:

A: The day will dawn - same as usual - and we'll be able to have a nice weekend and go on with our lives…

B: The Rapture really will happen, Camping et al will get sucked up into the Great Reward and we'll be able to have FIVE WHOLE MONTHS of peace and quiet with no more Harold Camping and "Family Radio". Think of it: NO MORE people shoving pamphlets in your face and lecturing at you about how you're going to Hell! NO MORE "preachers" screaming at you on the subway! NO MORE 700 Club! NO MORE bombings and shootings at family planning centers!

So on May 22nd, 2011 let's all get together, celebrate and drink a toast to A: life itself "warts and all" or B: no more Harold Camping!!! Huzzah!


  1. Are you the owner of the "We're Still Here!!" graphic posted in your blog?

    If so, are you planning on printing it on some t-shirts. I'ld like to buy the t-shirt if you could add "Rapture Party May 21, 2011".

    Thanks, Tim

  3. Hey Tim, Yes I own the graphic for "We're Still Here" Day. I was considering making up a shirt for my cafepress shop & I will keep you posted. Thanks!

  4. Thanks, V.I.V.

    Looking forward to getting one.

    Though the graphic may seem topical for this specific occasion, I still feel it has a much broader appeal as a comment on life in general, so it can still be marketed after this religious circus event fades away from the public conscience.

    It's kinda' kitschy in a Jeff Koons sort of way.

    BTW, I'm a semi-retired cartoonist and illustrator. My style is mostly Mad magazine's Jack Davis and Mort Drucker inspired.
